Brockton is often called the “City of Champions” due to its status as the native city of BOTH former undeafeated heavyweight boxing champs Rocky Marciano and former middleweight boxing champ “Marvelous” Marvin Hagler.



Brockton enjoyed success being the nation’s largest producer of shoes during the civil war.
